About

I am originally from the UK and have been living in Frankfurt since 2013. I have travelled pretty much constantly for the last 20 years for work and study and haven’t been based in the UK for more than a decade. Now I work in the education industry helping other people begin their own international journeys.

Moving to Frankfurt was quite a hit and miss experience for me as so much of the information on the internet was generic information for Germany or was focused on the tourists and social life. I am sure that you will also notice that the official information from the authorities are mainly in German and can often be more confusing than helpful.

Which is why I started to write this blog. The aim is to catalogue my experiences and knowledge in Frankfurt and surrounding areas. If you are reading this page, then you have already seen that the content I post is a mixture of generic advice on Frankfurt/Germany, specific information on shops and services, and interesting events of places to go. I also got frustrated with the lack of real images of life in Frankfurt so I have included lots of pictures.

I was surprised at just how many people read the blog now, over 3000 people monthly (take a look at the chart below)! But don’t forget, blogging can sometimes be a lonely business, so comments and feedback are always welcome! 🙂

I hope that it gives you a few short cuts to getting things done and helps you avoid a few of the problems that I ran into as a non-German speaker setting up in Frankfurt.

Good luck!

  1. Hey I love the entries here and how informative they are on my city! Glad to know you have come to like Frankfurt, from what I can see. I am the Yelp Frankfurt Community Manager here and also organize get-togethers or events, so maybe it would be cool to get together and discuss our favorite places in the city? 🙂
